Graduate Aid & Assistantships

Many graduate programs offer one of three types of graduate assistantships:  administrative, teaching or research. Most assistantships are awarded to doctoral students, and some programs fund 100% of their graduate students while others do not.  These competitive awards typically provide compensation in the form of a full tuition waiver in addition to a monthly stipend for 10-20 hours of work per week.
